I don't know anything about...Feyenoord winger Igor Paixão remains quiet on Liverpool transfer rumours Transfers

With transfer rumours attached to Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz, Liverpool are looking to secure new attackers with a generational change in mind.

A wide variety of names have been reported in the media, including not only wingers but also centre forwards and attacking midfielders.

New head coach Arne Slot has been linked with a number of players from Feyenoord, where he was with the club until last season. Santiago Giménez and Quinten Timber have also been the subject of gossip stories, while Brazilian international Igor Paixão has been the subject of questions on social media regarding a move to Liverpool.

However, the former Brazil U-23 winger has said he is keeping quiet on the subject, but has expressed his gratitude regarding the support he has received in the Netherlands from his former manager as he tackles a new challenge at Anfield.

“I am listening and watching social media.”

“Lots of people always tagging me and asking: are you going to Liverpool?”

“I don’t know anything, I’m just waiting.”

“But Dutch football is pretty cool. Intensity is the big difference.”

“He also helped me with my arrival, with my evolution, and I felt like I was helping him.” 

“I’m glad everything worked out. He did an exceptional job with our squad.”

“I just have to thank him and wish him success at Liverpool. He’ll be missed, but he has to keep working”

At the moment, the 24-year-old left winger is not on target and Liverpool are unlikely to make a move for him. Furthermore, left wingers seem to be a low priority, as Diaz and Cody Gakpo are oversupplied in the squad.

However, they have been in talks to sign Newcastle forward Anthony Gordon, and if his ability and potential are high enough, they could be serious about acquiring him, whether a move goes through or not.

Will new manager Slot ever bring in a new player from an old club?
